We love Dr. Schindel, but the front office staff was too difficult to work with. We were given incorrect medical advice from whoever answered the phone on more than one occasion, and several times were told we could not speak to a nurse to get clarification. As we are often on the road, being able to access the doctors other than to be told to go to urgent care is necessary for us. We have found a reliable front office staff at another doctor's. They are meeting our needs far better. If you can deal with the front office staff, Dr. Schindel or any of the other doctors at this practice are great.
Dr. Schindel is one of my most personable doctors. I know he cares and that it top of my list. I have made several referrals to him and they all have made connections and followed through. Our chats always included that he is a great doc! I love that he is a christian and is not afraid to walk the walk. I have asked him to pray with me at critical life altering times and he has. He is a 5 doctor!
Dr. Schindel is an excellent gate-keeper. He is careful to refer me to specialists as needed. He stays in touch with those specialists. However, I believe the practice is growing too quickly for him to keep up. It is harder and harder to make appointments. I also believe his receptionists and insurance staff need to work on courtesy and friendliness.
